D.Hannigan holds firm to deny Shireshead 15 points

A makeshift 34* from 120 balls by Westgate's skipper meant that his side avoided defeat today.

By Jacob Vaughan

On a sunny but chilly day at Cross Hill Park, Shireshead won the toss and decided to bat. The home side were forced into an early bowling change as Sam Conroy was removed from the attack after bowling two beamers.

Colin Twiname (7) and Gareth Bleasdale (17) started well, putting the visitors on 22-0 from 10 before vice-captain Jacob Vaughan (11.4-2-29-4) accounted for them both before his spell ended. Sid Gani (12-6-13-0) bowled his usual magic at the other end but couldn't find a breakthrough and Shireshead were 37-2 at drinks.

Youngsters Jake Gauld (32) and Adam Murphy (42) then combined technique and power to put on 59, which was assisted by dropped catches and miss-fields, before Gauld fell to Dakshina De Silva (12-2-35-2). De Silva picked up another and Vaughan returned to take two more, before youngster Saj Islam (2-0-4-2) took his chance late on.

Westgate opened up with Chris Carter and Phil Webster as they both had to leave early.

Unfortunately for the home side, their wish was granted as they were both bowled in the first two overs, Carter falling to Weir (10-5-15-1) and Webster to Taylor (10-3-11-2) leaving Westgate 0-2 from two.

This meant 'veterans' Dave Hannigan (34n.o) and Sid Gani (6) were at the crease. They put on 10 and were looking good until Gani became Taylor's next victim.

This brought Vaughan (10) to the crease, with the captain and vice looking to get the score up to a respectable rate. However Vaughan was bowled by Bleasdale (12-5-18-3) who then accounted for Conroy (0) and Robbie Green (0).

De Silva (13) looked like he could bat through to the end before a good catch from Gauld removed him off the bowling of Wilson (6-0-22-2). 13 year old Rory Briggs (2) played nicely until he became Wilson's second victim.

Islam joined Hannigan at the crease and looked like he would be there until the end before falling with five balls to go, setting up a tense finish. However, the returning Matthew Hannigan ensured that Shireshead would not be taking home all 15.
